Second session on this painting it's not easy getting a perfect resemblance . Working over gold means not being able to fix any mistakes ,much like watercolor Once touch it doesn't come off
This is probably the most challenging work I've done
Guess i'll keep working till i get it right Posted by Picasa

inspiration found me

This is a photo of M.Marc LeBlanc he sudenly passed away in 2000i think at the age of 25
I got a commission to do his portrait in large format over gold I began this morning and things are progressing well
I felt very sad for the loss his parents must feel
I feel the work i'm doing ,is part of something important
Handsome isn't he! Posted by Picasa
